Mad Dog blades are crafted from Starrett alloy 496-01 high carbon tool steel. Mad Dog Knives feature a full flat grind on all blades for maximum cutting efficiency, and a hidden full tang for tremendous strength and perfect balance.
The Mad Dog grip is a proprietary glass/epoxy composite, compression bonded to the hidden full tang.
The aerospace grade composite grip material is capable of withstanding 300 Degrees F continuous and has a 79,000 psi compressive yield strength. The unique Mad Dog hand shaped composite grip ergonomically indexes the knife in the users hand, letting the user know how the blade is oriented, even in complete darkness. Mad Dog composite grips can withstand tremendous punishment and are also impervious to virtually all chemicals and solvents. The composite grip material provides 1,000 volts per mil dielectric strength, which effectively electrically isolates the user from the blade.
Mad Dog Knives are expertly hardened and selective tempered in house with Mad Dog’s tried and true recipe: HRc 62-63 at the edge, HRc 50-54 at the spine, tip and tang. This unique selective tempering provides superior edge holding with exceptional durability.Weighs in with ATAK sheath at 1 LB 3 OZ.
